Autumn is cancelled... we can't afford it.

Courtesy of Reuters, we learn that Chile is dealing with rampant energy inflation by extending summer for three weeks.

"Chile will delay the end of its summer time for three weeks as the country faces an energy squeeze because of drought and high demand, the government said Wednesday. Chile relies heavily on hydroelectric power to meet energy needs in the world's top copper producer, and rain shortages force generators to rely on costly fuel-driven plants, compounding inflation risks in the country's fast-growing economy."

Do we cancel Christmas next?
